A Tale of two reactions
Wednesday, 1 May, 2019
Here’s a hard hitting topic right out of the gate. Allergies are weird. General statement. Did you think I was talking about seasonal allergies? I guess those are sort of weird, with all that drainage and sneezing and everything, but what I’m talking about today is allergies and reactions to medications.
There’s a big range of drug reactions, hypersensitivities, and allergies—from short and mild to long and dramatic, and that’s why they make me nervous. And I’m not even getting into life-threatening anaphylaxis (sudden onset of swelling, rash and wheezing—like what most folks think of when they encounter people allergic to bees).
